20 years ago... Ellen DeGeneres made television HISTORY!

You know her from her crazy-fun day time talk show, but Ellen is more than that. She's affected history!

20 years ago Ellen ... well ... I'll use her words...

"My character, Ellen Morgan, came out as a lesbian, and I, Ellen DeGeneres, came out at the same time ... It was the first time a lead character had come out."

Her show today is a 20th anniversary celebration of that episode airing!

Congrats Ellen DeGeneres on making the world a little brighter not just for you, but for SO many others!!
